Let's Do Rocksteady – The Story Of Rocksteady 1966 to 1968

CD (Item 856951) Trojan, Mid/Late 60s — Condition: Used
$16.99 ...


Excellent 2 disc compilation of Rocksteady pulled from the Trojan vaults, one of the greatest sources of wonderful Jamaican soul. A great portrait of an important period in Jamaican music, when the tempos were slowing down a bit from the frantic pace of ska, but the music hadn't yet moved onto the cultural themes and dark minor key moods of the Roots era. 54 tracks in all, including Alton Ellis & the Flames "Cry Tough" and "Rocksteady", the Paragons "On The Beach", "The Tide Is High" and "Wear You To The Ball", Hopeton Lewis "Take It Easy", the Techniques "You Don't Care", the Melodians "I Will Get Along Without You", the Uniques "Gypsy Woman" and "Watch This Sound", Clancy Eccles "What Will Your Mama Say", Keith & Tex "Stop That Train", Toots & the Maytals "54-46 That's My Number", the Pioneers "Long Shot (Buss Me Bet)", Desmond Dekker & the Aces "Music Like Dirt" and "Israelites", Lee Perry "People Funny Boy" and the Upsetters "Return Of Django".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

Used CD Grade

We have only one grade for non-new CDs at Dusty Groove — "Used CD". This grade is somewhat all-encompassing, but we choose it because we try to offer Used CDs in the best shape possible.

When you purchase a Used CD you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks, the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves), and the booklet to be in good shape. Used CDs may show some signs of use but if there are significant details or defects we will list them underneath the item — just like we do with LPs — so look there for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details.

All of our Used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. If you purchase a Used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly — and if it does not, then you may return it for a full refund.
